ol’ Republic Roadhouse closing Nov. 5 to “evaluate best possible course going forward”

I confirmed this information, posted on Facebook, with the owners Jim and Simon:


“The PG&E outages have hit us very hard, and compounded an already challenging year, in particular, the week in mid-October when we had no generator support and suffered a total loss of revenue and food product. We are not the only company to feel the effect of these outages, and we are still reeling from it.

“As of today, November 5th, 2019, Ol’ Republic Roadhouse will be closed in order to evaluate the best possible course going forward.

We will provide frequent updates through Facebook

“We will continue to cater food from the Roadhouse kitchen to offer food seven days a week to the Ol’ Republic Taproom at 124 Argall Way in the Seven Hills District of Nevada City.

“Our hearts are heavy with this decision, and this has been one of the hardest days of our lives. We have appreciated and valued your patronage at the Roadhouse.

“Jim Harte & Simon Olney
Co-Founders, Ol’ Republic Brewery & Roadhouse”

  1. This is disappointing news Jeff,I really enjoyed their beer especially Dead Canary and Clouds of Jupiter. Been to the Road House twice enjoyed both times,but when their beer disappeared from the shelves of the Grocery Outlet and not all were available at the tap room I figured something is going on in production / distribution. I hope these problems are not self inflicted.
